Scott is a hard worker. With his new industrial wet/dry vacuum, sander, chop saw, nail gun, air compressor, and various other devices he went to town. For Valentines Day. For me. A headboard was higher on the priority list for me than a couch... so this is a BIG deal :)
1st Step: Buying the wood.
2nd Step: Cutting the wood.
3rd Step: Nailing the wood.
4th Step: Improvising a bit.
5th Step: Staining. Wiping it off. Staining. Wiping it off.
6th Step: Run over the can of polyurethane (read: finish spray) with the car.
7th step: Send Stef looking for said spray through all the isles of Home Depot.
8th step: Carry the headboard up the stairs.
9th step: Proudly make the new bed :)
I LOVE how it turned out. Thank goodness for the website knockoffwood where I found the pattern. Building for men is like quilting for girls. No wonder we are a good match!
Luckily Scott has skills. He thinks if he were to build another one, it could be completed in ~3 hours (not including drying time). For about $50 I would say this DIY project is a GREAT thing!
10th step: Get ready to start the side tables. (And believe me, I have big plans for future projects :)
